about

After more than 15 years without his own trio, award-winning film composer Olaf Taranczewski returns to the live stage with his longtime friends and musical partners Jean-Philippe Wadle and Benedikt Stehle.

The three musicians describe their music as Cinematic Jazz – creating moods, emotions and acoustic landscapes, giving each note room to breathe and searching for a deeper meaning in each melody, in each harmony.

“Excellent sound quality and superb pressing! Limited to 500 copies.”
Vinyl-fan.de / Dezember 2021

“Jazz that is at the same time absolutely timeless and very modern.”
Ralf Dorschel, Play Jazz! NDR Radio

“Piano trio at its best“
Daniella Baumeister, HR2 Radio, Jazz Now

“This is the gentle rebellion of jazz.”
Volly Tanner, SCHALL Magazin 3/21

“You can clearly hear that the pianist is an award-winning composer of film music and accordingly has an excellent feeling for dramaturgical suspense arcs and evocative storytelling.”
Josef Engels, Rondo 01/2022

“I can hardly remember the last time I heard purely acoustic instruments mixed so finely.”
Thomas Kirsche, likehifi.de, “The best music albums of 2021“

“Like hardly any other current release, this production breathes that Berlin all-time spirit which cannot simply be gentrified away.”
Wolf Kampmann, Jazz thing 6/21

“Not only the pianist has an outstanding knowledge of jazz, which can be heard here. The music is subtle, of refined elegance and at the same time not devoid of jazz feeling and naturalness.”
Jazz-Fun.de
